About The Audio CD

The Genius Of Series
The world of Hindustani Classical Music comprises of Geniuses, both vocalists and instrumentalists. Their music emanates a divine spark. Be it their first recording or a phase of experimentation or perhaps a time when they reached a crescendo in their careers, each of these is a slice of history. And we at Saregama are proud custodians of these immortal moments.

In this series, we have complied some of the finest performances of the legends, thereby showcasing the Genius of these Geniuses!

About The Artiste

Pt. Nikhil Banerjee
Of the great Sitar Trinity of the 20th century, Pt. Nikhil Banerjee was considered the most sensitive, elegant and stylish instrumentalist. If Pt. Ravi Shankar was celebrated for grandness, and Ustad Vilayat Khan for technical prowess and lyricism, Pt. Nikhil Banerjee was virtually worshipped for the celestial quality of mystic radiance that he brought to every note of his music. He had achieved an alluring, iridescent and absolutely stunning tonality, that seemed to echo forth from the mysterious spaces of the stars.

Pt. Nikhil Banerjee learnt his music at the feet of the great rishi of Indian music, Acharya Allauddin Khan. As with all of the Maihar maestro’s students, Nikhilda, as he was known to millions of avid music lovers of Bengal, had a distinctive personal quality within the Maihar mould. The languorous alaap of Maihar acquired a mystic quality in his playing. Pt. Nikhil Banerjee could mesmerize and haunt his listeners, his fan following was classy and completely, rabidly attached to his music. He remained a unique cult figure in Bengal, standing amongst a group of titans as one who looked inward and skyward, to conquer the heavens.

About The Music

This Three CD-pack encompasses the best of Pt Nikhil Banerjee, thus justifying the series ‘The Genius of.”

All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
